Evelyn Lin, Deputy Chairman and Co-Head of the 20th and 21st Century Art Department, Christie’s Asia Pacific, commented, “The art market in Asia is vibrant and dynamic as ever, despite global political and socioeconomic challenges. The influx of young buyers, coupled with the emergence of new public and private art institutions and art fairs in Asia, provide us with a solid foundation to introduce more top-quality works by celebrated global artists to meet the growing demand here."

Cristian Albu, International Director and Co-Head of the 20th and 21st Century Art Department, Christie’s Asia Pacific, added, “We are thrilled to be entering an exciting month for art this May in Hong Kong alongside Art Basel and Art Central, with our tactfully curated auctions, the groundbreaking exhibition of Flesh and Soul: Bacon/Ghenie, as well as a series of educational art talks.
